Our last full day of program has arrived and we woke up and we were already at the Baths due to our wonderful staff who did an early morning motor! Together, we all hiked and snorkeled through the Baths along with many pictures and fun memories made. From there, we sailed to Cooper Island where we all relaxed and partook in various water sports. It wouldn’t be our last full day of program without an impromptu dance competition!
Our final sail together was to Trellis Bay where we had the best sail yet. Through a strong squall and a difficult mooring, we put our true sailing skills to the test. A final night on shore with a wonderful dinner was the best way to end the night.
The greatest challenge during the program was staying entertained during the quarantine period. Not being able to leave your boat and not having a phone, which was a crutch against boredom, it was difficult at first to stay entertained.
